    Winemaker's Notes:

    Blend: 50% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot

    Chateau Lascombes is a long-aging wine. It is concentrated and powerful, tannic, with all the elegance and finesse of the great Margeau wines.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Displays blackberry and blueberry aromas, with a hint of cappuccino. Full and silky, with a lovely texture of ripe tannins and an aftertaste of dark chocolate, berry and light vanilla. This is a solid estate making solid wines now.

    One of the more modern-styled wines from the appellation of Margaux, always with a prominent overlay of toasty new oak, espresso roast, and sweet black fruits, this wine seems more restrained and has backed off its concentration with the 2006. It is a mid-weight, elegant wine with notes of licorice and black currants as well as a hint of tobacco leaf. The wine is concentrated and obviously outstanding, but the moderate tannins in the finish suggest cellaring it for 2-3 years and drinking it over the following 15-20.

    This is already developing fast, its balance right in place. While that does not suggest much aging potential, the dry tannins, sweet fruit and smoky wood give it richness and concentration. To drink in five years.

    Deep red-ruby. Wild nose combines currant, blackberry, coffee, mocha, cedary oak and a light weedy quality. Lush and rather exotic in the mouth, with the liqueur-like quality carrying through. Not at all overly sweet but a distinctly supple and fine-grained style of 2006. Finishes with very ripe tannins and lovely persistence. Accessible already but with the stuffing to age.

    50% Merlot; 45% Cabernet Sauvignon; 5% Petit Verdot. A touch sweeter in scent owing to both obvious ripeness and an extra measure of rich oak, Lascombes intimates a sense of juiciness that separates it from its classmates in 2006. It is a touch dry at the finish, and its relatively fine-gained tannins afford it room to grow without adding prohibitive toughness.
